Introducing HostBill reseller program

Due to growing interest in this type of cooperation with us, today we’re announcing that our reseller program is available! You can now add cheap HostBill license as an addon to your hosting/vps/servers offering – starting from $ 59,75 USD/month. Please note that we allow reselling only for internal hosting customers – and we track them by IP you’ll be asked to provide – so package containing only HostBill itself is prohibited.

More info on new version, OS Template picker

HostBill 1.2.6 coming up – release is scheduled on tommorow, so exactly after two weeks from previous release. I think we will win our own time-challange, because we’ve done A LOT during this two weeks of development.

I’d like to share with you another new exciting HostBill feature – OS Template choose for clients. This is dedicated for VPS hosts who wants to fully automate their business – VPS can now be automatically created with OS template that client picked during order. But the most amazing part is that you as administrator dont need to type in every offered template by hand – just click “Get values from server” and HostBill will fetch all available templates for you automatically! No more complex custom fields, and updating them everytime new OS arrives.

Add this to our other new feature – daily / weekly billing, sit back, relax and enjoy new signups – VPS Hosting rocks!

Clientarea – OS available to pick during order

Eyecandy from next version

Hello all HostBill users! We’re working hard on record-speed release, and I’ve got a little sneak-preview of one of features. It is console for our module (statistics were already introduced on their forum).  I’ve just finished implementing it, therefore it might need some styling. Dont forget to leave comment below, letting us know what you think and what else needs to be done.
